Snap on socket score

I picked up this lazy Susan with 95% Snapon sockets from 2 1/2 inch down. The other 5% are MAC and Craftsman.
The bottom level is 3/4 drive, then 1/2 and then 3/8.
$100 took it all.

The really practical problem with a smart charger is that most of them will not identify and charge a battery with a voltage below 7 or so volts. I've rescued many a battery from the junk yard with...

That is interesting info GWIZ. I have owned Subarus for decades. I wonder why this problem never appeared before synthetic oil?

The oil is leaking by the rings and is being burned.

Subaru considers one quart burned for every 1,000–1,200 miles to be within “normal specifications.” That means if you follow their recommended...

Oil is changed every 5,000. I've used Mobil 1 mainly. I'm adding a half quart of oil every 2 weeks. Subaru,lost the lawsuit but in reality fixed very few engines.

One light switched at the man door and one gfci outlet. That is the NEC minimum. The main reason is to get the inspector out of my business.

11.8 volts no load is too low. It indicates a 30 % charge. I would suspect sulphation and possibly a weak cell gravitating towards failure.
